Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415107318, Hardcover)In The Inhuman Condition Keith Tester explores whether we are capable of coming to terms with the world we have made. He argues that we are not. We are so confused by the wonders and the sights and sounds around us that we all try to build safe little homes in which we can, for a while, be consoled by love which is doomed to fail as soon as it is thought about and by commodities which leave us unsatisfied. We all try to make sense of our humanity by turning elsewhere: to inhuman things. All of us, that is, with enough money. The book offers a major interpretation of contemporary cultural and social relationships. It is also a major 1xercise in sociology which encompasses thinkers like Heidegger, Arendt, Benjamin and Simmel.
